I think the best one by far is the VSL Synchron Concert D-274.

Embertone Walker 1955 D
VSL D-274

Although they vary depending on people's taste, these three things are usually mentioned a lot.
But you might like CinePiano, Ivory American D, etc because the taste is subjective.

Specifically for live playing purposes I would say either the VSL Synchron Pianos Concert D, or Synthogy Ivory American Concert D. Both have excellent playability. The VSL has pedal down samples so it sounds very authentic when you use the pedal. The Synthogy has excellent half pedaling and really feels like a real instruments under your hands if you take your time to configure it properly, and it also requires a lot less CPU power than the VSL instrument for which you need a powerful CPU if you want to use more than a few mics so that it sounds good etc..
